The Faceless Apparitions of Vyolynce is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by That Guy with a fair hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 24.159 billion Vyos love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Healthcare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shadowlands. The average income tax rate is 23%, but much higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

Pharmacies close down as medicinal drugs are sold freely by the government, the government's official position on invasive species is 'who cares?', the government helps teach children how to kill a man from six paces, and visitors to the famed rainforests are instead taken to vast furniture factories. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vyolynce's national animal is the shadow, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its currency is the soul.

Vyolynce is ranked 2nd in Darkest Corners of the Mind and 74,072nd in the world for Most Authoritarian, with 0.156 Stalins.
